Sheheryar Munawar clears the air
Speaking to Fuchsia Magazine, the Parey Hut Love star revealed that he got the picture taken off from social media as soon as it went viral.
“You must have only seen it for only 20 minutes. I got it removed as soon as I could. Obviously, I could not reach all the media outlets but thank you to all the journalists and my PR team for helping me get it removed,” said Munawar.
The actor further revealed that although he met Padukone over dinner, he did not want the picture to go viral since it was a casual meeting and the actors interacted on a human level.
“Nothing actually, it was a casual interaction, it was human interaction. We were together at a dinner for 2-3 hours and I had only talked to her on a human level. I did not want it to leak in the form of a picture. However, it got leaked and I had to take an action,” added the actor.
